Bridges

Bridges use neighboring teeth to hold a tooth replacement in the space created by the missing tooth. A fixed bridge replaces a missing tooth without an implant and helps to maintain a stable bite and provide a beautiful smile. It also helps to prevent teeth shifting, loss of bone, difficulty chewing, grinding, and pain.

Procedure

The need of a bridge will be determined by your dentist using an examination, x-rays, and probing to check for periodontal disease. The type of bridge ideal for your situation will also be determined and discussed with you. At the first visit, the site will be numbed and a hand piece will remove any decay. The supporting teeth will be shaped and an impression will be taken. You will likely be given a temporary bridge while the lab will use this model to create your permanent bridge. On your next visit, the dentist will confirm the fit of new bridge along with your bite and then cement or bond the bridge in place. A three-unit bridge will use the neighboring teeth on both sides to anchor the bridge with crowns that restore damage or decay on neighboring teeth.  A Maryland bridge uses neighboring teeth but attaches to the back of them with wings instead of using crowns for minimal tooth preparation for stronger, less sensitive teeth.  With your permanent bridge in place you will have a beautiful, healthy smile!
